Aggregate Crushing Value Apparatus
The aggregate crushing value provides a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate to crushing under a gradually applied compressive load.
Consists of Case hardened Mild steel cylindrical container of 150mm dia + 0.5mm x 130mm to 140mm high with base plate 200 to 230mm square x 6mm thick. A plunger of 148mm + 0.5mm dia x 100 to 115mm high. All parts directly coming in to contact with the specimen during the test are made of mild steel duly case hardened. Supplied complete with tamping rod, 16mm dia x 600mm long, one end rounded.
The apparatus is available in three size
75mm dia for 1/8” to ¼” size aggregate,
150mm dia for 3/8” to ¾” aggregate (standard) and
300mm dia for 1” to 2” aggregate.
